Given an example of Cisco's defence in depth, delegates will be taught how Cisco IPS protects network devices from attacks. Given an IPS sensor appliance, the delegates will learn to install the appliance in the network and initialise it. Delegates will also learn how to use IDS Device Manager (IDM) to configure basic sensor settings and to configure built-in signatures to meet the requirements of a given security policy. They will learn the functions of signature engines and their parameters and will understand how to use IDM to tune and create signatures to meet the requirements of a given security policy
Delegates will be taught how to use IDM to tune a sensor to work optimally in the network. They will also use the Monitoring Centre for Security and Cisco Threat Response to maximize alarm management efficiency. The course explains blocking concepts and how to use IDM to configure blocking for a given scenario. The delegates will be learn how to install both the NM-CIDS in a router and initialise it, install the module in a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Switch and initialise it using the switch to capture network traffic for intrusion prevention analysis. The delegates will also install and recover the sensor software image and perform service pack and signature updates and will also verify system configuration using the CLI and IDM
After completing this course, delegates will be able to;
Delegates who attend this advanced course must have experience in configuring Cisco IOS software and have met the following prerequisites;
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
